The problem with autoshite is that you can rarely buy an unusual vehicle for pennies anymore. At least not a useable one anyway.

I can't get excited over Vectras and Focuses, sorry. Just not rare enough.

Some lovely classic cars on here but they are not shite.

This is about as individual as it gets for a modern, surely?IMG_20170922_154614.jpg

Didn't really want it but it was so cheap I couldn't refuse. Under the paint is a tidy car with. A reasonable history and lowish miles.IMG_20170922_161511.jpg

May the farce be with you?IMG_20170922_161559.jpg

Well after a good look round it and a bit of a drive on some private roads I actually like it. It doesn't seem to need anything for a test. I've fixed the fuel leak for £1. Think it needs a crank pulley though, there is a dreadful clatter on tickover but it goes when revved.

I was questioning my judgement but everyone other than mrsdodgy thinks it cool

Mercedes diesel engine...... there is a dreadful clatter on tickover

There's your answer, right there.

 

Funny enough there's one been advertised today on a Facebook group local to me.  2.4 petrol, no MoT,   I do like these...

I was looking at a PT Cruiser the other day, and realised that I actually really like them. I think I mostly don't like the faux-Americana that haunts these cars like some fuggin' ghost. You know, wolf T-shirts and that sort of tacky shite.

Absolutely dreadful, true scraping-the-bottom-of-your-shoe motoring. Well bought.

 

Now paint the wheels red, make some port hole windows for the sides using a steak and kidney pie tin foil dish, make a skull with lighting up eyes as a gear knob and get yourself to Rhyl.

I'm with you on the alternatives. If it's between a bloody Vectra, Focarse or Laguna, I'd be all over a PT Cruiser. Fingers crossed the MOT isn't too painful.

A PT Cruiser with a CB radio fitted... I take it you've already scraped the confederate flag off the roof then?

 

Fair dos, that's as bad as it gets; a car with no redeeming features whatsoever. You have just won Autoshite.

... Autoshitting at its reverse best- if you'd paid money for that you've obviously been charged with some serious 'long stretch' offence, n need to escalate your insanity 'defense' to the fullest, n have it 100% 'water'tight' - I commend you legal counsel for its far reaching 'vision'... specially the bit about not being into Vectras n Focus's; prosecution might aswell throw the towel in...
